A good day

Played on Christmas Eve. Course was busy early but thinned out in a couple hours. Still a little wet but played ok. More rain coming later and likely will be too wet to play the next few days.

My first time

Very friendly staff. Despite the wet conditions the course was fun to play. Greens are small which makes the course challenging. Overall a great experience and fun.

I apologize about 3 holes being closed on the day you played. The fairways were being aerified. Feel free to contact GolfNow and ask for a refund, I will approve if GolfNow contacts us. Or contact me personally and I will make it right. 912-238-7100 and ask for Paul Johnson, PGA

Was not able to play

Due to a storm the night before, the course was full of water and we were unable to play as the course was closed. I am a beginner and find the course to be in decent shape and a variety of levels of difficulty. Staff is outstanding! Paul Johnson goes out of his way to make you feel welcome!!!

Unbelievable

The worst golf course I have ever played It showed a hot deal at 22 dollars .and I get it it's was cheap..You drive thru a large paper plant and trains are within a 60 degree wedge..I really have never gave a bad review to a business.and I really feel bad because it hurts people's pay...We paid for 18 only played 9...

Unforgettable

Course is in horrible shape, tee boxes could use a weed eater. Not sure about mowing of other areas. Had a little higher expectations with its affiliation with First Tee.

Greens like carpet and not sure when the bunkers were last touched.

Sorry we are not Augusta National... our course was built in 1937 and our revitalization plan has our course in solid shape. We don't agree with your assessment and have reported your comment due to "trolling".

If you would like a refund, please contact myself at 912-238-7100 and ask for Paul Johnson, Certified PGA professional.

Just a great day...

I love MC because Paul and Cameron are great people. They treat me well everytime I play. First I was a super at a 9 hole executive course in Florida with very little budget and labor like MC, and it's a struggle. I can play tee to green all the time. Great course to work on your game. Least MC has grass on the greens not like some in the area. 195 yard par 3 with a quarter size green not so easy. Great mix of dog legs left and rights. If your struggling with your game, great course to go to. Pace of play......outstanding. Thanks to the retirees to give up their time for the say to assist in some course maintenance. You dont have to go pay 100 bucks to have a great time playing golf.

Great value -fun course

First off, trust the gps. It IS amongst the paper mill. Second, it’s not a class A course. . The greens aren’t smooth and the fairway is rough.
BUT. The people were friendly, the pace was great, the value is awesome and my husband and I had a blast !! We would definitely go again if we were in the area.

You are absolutely right with GPS. The course was built in 1937 when nothing was around us. Now we are in the middle of everything.

Appreciate the compliments!

Poor conditions

Nine hole course that is in the middle of an industrial park. The grass hadn’t been cut in a week. Patches of heavy grass in the middle of the fairways. Greens extremely slow. Also hadn’t been cut in days. Don’t waste your time or money.

Sorry about the course conditions. Our maintenance staff priority was the installation of a new enlarged putting green and several basic tasks were pushed aside. We are back with conditioning so give us a try.

Dear Anonymous,

Thanks for playing our course on Monday. I was curious the specific issues with:
* Friendliness of staff
* Amenities
* Conditions

Would like to know what steps we could take as a course to improve. Thanks for you constructive criticism.

More bang than you’d expect

I’m a single digit player and this course intrigues me. The blue tees are difficult and it makes for a competitive round. It’s cheap, the greens are in great shape, the fairways are tight, and the bunkers are well kept. Can’t beat it for the money.
